In 2013 The Drum, Europe’s largest media and marketing website, joined forces with the industry to address the fact that many advertisers were shying away from programmatic trading for an abundance of reasons including not fully understanding how it all works, lack of transparency and as a consequence not trusting the process.
We wanted to rid the mystic and confusion surrounding this buoyant sector so we focused on highlighting the companies that were majoring on clarity and transparency.
That was when our Digital Trading Awards programme was born.
The programme has been running for three successful years in the UK and two in the USA. In 2017 its APAC's turn.
It’s not just an awards show but the start of an editorial program and calendar of events culminating with the awards ceremony in October, showing The Drum's commitment to programmatic trading.
Entries are open across APAC and with The Drum's support we put both entrants and sponsors in-front of a captive audience.
We know how to celebrate excellence. We know how to throw a party. But more importantly we know how to give great companies the recognition they deserve.
